Yellow Bird sits on half an acre of land on the edge of a gully. It has a large fenced tropical garden with a tree swing and a few local Monkeys which like to visit on a morning to eat the fruit.

What is included: kids toys (if needed), housekeeping staff once to twice a week. There are also babysitters in the neighbourhood who we can recommend if needed.

Beach Access: All beaches in Barbados are public but the home exchange also includes use of the beach and restaurant facilities at the Port St. Charles Yacht Club. The Yacht Club offers dining and bar service in an open air setting with friendly service and a panoramic view of the beaches, West Coast and yachts at berth. Deck loungers are provided on the deck for sunning and a staircase into the sea complements the heated pool for swimming. View the Port St. Charles Yacht Club at (under restaurants).

Other Activites:
We cannot lend a car but we can certainly recommend some reasonable places to rent one and arrange this in advance for you. In addition, we would be happy to book any on island activities for you and make recommendations on fun things to do while you are here. We can also arrange to have the house stocked in advance with the groceries of your choice if you order your groceries on line through

PS. We have three wonderful cats and some chickens which will need to be fed daily! Our kids would love to look after your pets if you have any.
